john mccain supports the kerry nomination. but he again criticized president obama for not taking stronger action against the assad regime. >> we are sowing the wind in syria, and we're going reap the whirlwind. and that whirlwind will be the increased presence of al-qaida and islamist groups, which are now flooding into syria, as you know. and we can do a lot more without putting american boots on the ground, and we can prevent this further slaughter and massacre and inhumanity. otherwise, we will be judged very, very harshly by history. >> i have complete understanding of where you're coming from on this and knowing your frustration and know what you're trying to say about it. what i think everybody worries about, john, is that if you have a complete implosion of the state, nobody has clear definition of how you put those pieces back together, number one. and number two, you have a much greater risk with respect to the chemical weapons. now, that's why i want to get in and see what the contingency plans are because i can't measure risk without having a sense of what's on the tab
as there is also opposition. remember, some senators, like senator mccain, think this is the right thing to do. i'm told in talking to officials here that president obama believes this is the right thing to do. a number of his advisers believe this is the right thing to do. this is not something that's going to be implemented overnight, of course. there's going to be a lot of thought put into what women are serving in what positions, but this is something that president obama believed certainly in consultation with his defense team was the way to move forward. >> nbc's kristin welker, thank you, kristin. >>> next, why some on president obama's team had second thoughts on using this. stay with us. ♪ america, america god shed his grace on thee ♪ [ construction sounds ] ♪ [ watch ticking ] [ engine revs ] come in. ♪ got the coffee. that was fast. we're outta here. ♪ [ engine revs ] ♪ this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may h
